I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

Hootin' down the highway...

Well, my ramp is finally built. Dang thing has nore wood then the house! It is over 32' long, gentle incline, and awesome! I'd post pics but alas, no camera. Today Rob encouraged me out, and I went on the grass for the first time (I had been down the ramp but not left it yet, not being sure how the chair would handle "terrain"). As a matter of fact, the first time I went out on it was the first time I had left the house since March! Well, Rob encouraged me to go on the grass and see the chicks and ducklings. He went inside and got a big bowl of feed for them, and I sat and fed them. Then he went and got a blue plastic thingy and filled it with water and made a mini-pool for them, which of course the ducklings immediately took advantage of, drinking their fill and having a bath, while I sat in the sun and watched. Then Rob got on his bike and Robbin on his, and we went down the driveway. When we got to the end he asked me which way I wanted to go. I've never been to the right, always the left toward town, so we went to the right. We went down the road, all three of us, Rob on his bike, Robbin on his 3-wheeler, and me on my chair. We went for over a mile! Then turned around and came home. There is a pretty fair hill on the way, and the chair went up it like it was flat. At the top I turned around and the guys were still at the bottom, struggling back down the driveway and home, by this time I had had enough sun, more then I had had all year cumulative! Came up the ramp, inside, and cracked a cold one!
Also...we *might* have a dog. A yellow lab, named Polly. She is at a rescue house, and they have been (please excuse the pun) Hounding me to take her. I guess her rescuer thinks (and quite rightly) that this would be the perfect home for her. To the point that they are even willing to bring her all the way here (from N. central Wi!) And to the point where they are not going to charge us fee, no re-homing, nuttin' Now, I like yellow labs, and she looks like a sweetie, and is still puppy enough to be able to learn the ropes here, so yeah, I think she's found her home and we've found our dog. BTW, My Maxx never came home. I miss his big, warm, wonderful self.
Anyway, that's the latest.
